Lake Superior Theatre

I Do! I Do! (musical)
Book by  Tom Jones. Music by  Harvey Schmidt. Lyrics by  Tom Jones
Based on The Fourposter by Jan de Hartog
July 23-27 and July 30-August 3 at 7:30 p.m.
RATED PG

A touching musical of two soul mates navigating the perils of life featuring amazing Maggie and Amy Malaney, Patrick Bradley, and Marty Martello. The two-character story spans fifty years, from 1895 to 1945, as it focuses on the ups and downs experienced by Agnes and Michael Snow throughout their marriage.  From the wedding night innocence of ”Goodnight”, to the hat-and-cane sophistication of ”It’s A Well-Known Fact”, to the fun vamping of ”Flaming Agnes”, to the bouncy ”When The Kids Get Married”, to the 11:00 ballad ”What Is A Woman?”, there is something for all musical tastes.  From suffering through affairs, the angst of raising children, and growing old together, the challenges and joys of relationships are ALL here in this wonderful score of I Do! I Do!

Tickets will be available through all NMU EZ Tickets Outlets, (906) 227-1032 or online at www.nmu.edu/tickets
